“Sorry, you can’t come in here without a Thai” (restaurant joke)

A popular food joke describes people of many nationalities attempting to enter a fine restaurant. A snooty maître d’ delivers the punchline: “Sorry, you can’t come in here without a Thai.” ("Thai" is a pun for “tie” or “necktie.")

The joke has been cited in print since at least 2011.
